Be sure to Download this Seller Lead Sheet and fill it in with the appropriate information and bring it to the meeting! You can bring as many as you want!

Jeff RichmanSo many investors, new and seasoned alike, struggle with what to offer and are often thwarted by trying to determine if an investment opportunity is a “Deal” or “No Deal’. Some investors jump on every potential deal that comes along because they’re afraid to let one get away. Others can’t seem to “pull the trigger” on a deal because they’re so afraid to make a mistake. Some don’t even know why they can’t act on a deal. All new investors face the same challenge: How do you know if you’re looking at a good deal or not?

Chip CrossFirst of all, what could be a good deal for one investor might not be for another. Once you know what your personal buying goals are and establish your criteria, it will help eliminate “No Deals” from your consideration quickly. After that, it’s a matter of knowing how to “size up” a good deal by knowing what to measure and how to calculate your potential profits and expenses. Is it a CASH Deal? Is it a Lease Option? Do I buy Subject-To? Should I Buy, Fix & Flip?

This month at Charlotte REIA we will have a panel of Real Estate Experts that will review your deals and share with you how they would make the deal work or if you should turn around and run. We want you to bring YOUR Leads (download and complete this complimentary LEAD SHEET) and Linda, Jeffrey and Chip will pre-screen and analyze them, show you what they would do and possibly construct a few potential offers on the spot!

At the September Charlotte REIA meeting, you will learn:

  • How to easily analyze deals and decide “deal or no deal” and determine your exit strategy to maximize your profits
  • How to be a transaction engineer.
  • How to be a problem solver.
  • To create strategies that you could be using right now to create bigger profits and increased cash flows!
  • And much, much more!

This panel of experts is NOT TO BE MISSED if you want to really learn how to determine what to offer and how to read the numbers!

This will be a great evening. We look forward to seeing your smiling faces on Thursday night. Please bring a Deal/Opportunity for us to review. Remember to download a LEAD SHEET, fill it out and bring it to our event! Bring family and friends. And remember: We LOVE questions and input – questions and input make us all better, smarter, wiser real estate investors!

All this is happening at the Charlotte REIA main meeting on Thursday, September 1th at 6PM at the Crowne Plaza Charlotte Executive Park located at 5700 Westpark Dr in Charlotte, NC. We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!

Linda Dana

Posted on August 24, 2016 by

Linda DanaLinda began her investing career over a decade ago. Linda who is a single mom has become a highly successful Investor who has proven to all those naysayers out there… that you can be an Investor and Invest in Real Estate without having a A++ credit rating and without having a lot of money. Linda believes herself to be a “Transaction Engineer” developing her niche, “Buying on Terms and Selling on Terms”.

As a result of Linda’s talents she was invited to become a member of the USA Mentor team for “Rich Dad University” and spent just about 7 years traveling the Unites States teaching others how to build “Long Term Wealth” using real estate.

You have heard speakers say “You don’t need to OWN it, you need to CONTROL it” Linda who is known as one of the most knowledgeable & creative minds in her market, started specializing in a strategy called “Cooperative Assignment” a total transparent transaction. Educating the homeowner (seller) on the benefits of selling with owner financing via a “Land Contract” a method that’s has been around decades. While controlling the property with an option Linda then finds a qualified buyer and assigns her option. The investor gets a “consulting fee” as the “Transaction Engineer” and backs out while partnering the seller & buyer together… A totally TRANSPARENT transaction.
